I thought my sago palms were deader than a doornail from the historic freeze in February. All the garden experts said that if they hadn't shown any signs of putting out new growth by now that they were gone. But today I noticed green baby fronds coming out of the tops.

They live!

Couple flowers of painted tounge. Doing fairly well considering the heat. Planted 3 dozen plants up north a couple days back. Deer proofed the bed and hoping they stay out.

Tormato, are yours showing flowers yet?

Day one of solarization. Nematodes have become an issue and this is my response. Plan is leave this plastic on until mid August at the earliest. Wonder how hot it will get under this clear plastic? I’ll take it’s temperature in a few weeks and see.

Had to remove some still marginally productive tomatoes and peppers, but I think overall it will mean a better garden going into the fall and next spring. Plus, old, past their prime tomato plants get kind of ugly here. Still have a few flowers, herbs, some okra, bitter melon and a Japanese moschata type winter squash going in the two uncovered beds. Soil in those is a lot younger.

I cannot change history, so I do hope i gave you a good impression of myself

Crepe myrtles in a variety of colors blooming everywhere right now in my area. Attracts bees.

I don't see the red ones very often. Perched on a bamboo garden stake.

Never seen a red one, ever. A beauty!

Are the myrtles scented? A wonderful mass of colour.
And that salvia is nice and bushy.

To me the myrtles don't have much of a fragrance.

Lots of people like the aesthetic of the peeling bark which is characteristic of the myrtles.

I have grown this passion vine for 3 or 4 years and every blossom it has produced has been purple petals with purple fringe. But there was one flower today that has white petals and mostly white fringe. A mutation going on here?
